Manoj Bajpayee who has completed 25 years in the film industry is known for his incredible acting in the films such as Satya, Shool, and Raajneeti. Recently, during the promotional event of Aiyaary, Bajpayee shared his experience about the times when he lost hope in acting.
“After two three years of rejection by NSD (the actor was denied entry to study at National School of Drama) I had lost hope and conviction in myself. I started doubting my own dream of becoming an actor.”
“Then came in Barry Johnes, who became my guru and he is very much instrumental in shaping up my career. I would not be an actor had he not been there.”
On the other hand, Manoj was asked to gain weight for the film, Aiyaary, but he couldn’t. Sidharth Malhotra revealed the reason behind this, “He tried his best, but what to do whatever he ate it didn’t show up on his body. He wasn’t putting on weight even after having food with high calories.”
“They have worked hard on his look. Whatever you do he looks so young. Thanks to his fit physique. So they used a fake moustache and contact lenses for a variation in his look.”
